Thunderbirds are 'about to' go

Thunderbirds Are Go! (Again): Cult TV show is set to return as ITV commissions 26 episodes in new re...

Combining CGI (computer-generated imagery) animation and live-action model sets, Thunderbirds Are Go! will broadcast on ITV in 2015.

ITV and children's channel CiTV will broadcast the new series, in the form of 26 half-hour episodes.

As an avid lover of the original series I am not looking forward to this new commission. If the 2004 film is anything to go by them definitely not for me. Also, can a half-hour episode really do the plots any justice?

I don't think it'll be up to much either, sometimes they should just let things go..

Re: Thunderbirds are 'about to' go

I was a bit gutted by the recent film if I'm honest.. I thought it was carp but still ended up with an ex rental DVD of it lol.
It would be nice to see a quality new TB but if its as cheesy as the film then they shouldn't bother!
As for 30 minutes, with a commercial break in the middle and one at the end, it's actually only 20 minutes.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

If they're not puppets with wobbly heads then it won't be Thunderbirds.
Just another knock off cash grabbing copy.
Why not re-show the original series?
